There were three resurrection methods. One was to respawn at your respawn point. The second was to get a healer to resurrect you. The third was a force-resurrect.
The third method required one to have resurrection pills. They cost around 50 gold a piece from the Shop, so normal people couldn’t afford to use it.
The only people who’d splurge this much money on her were the leads.
And as it just so happened, the male lead had someone whose main was a ghost on his side.
‘Good! The leads this time have gone so shameless, they’ve broken their character settings!’
Before the other party had time to force-resurrect her again, she used a resurrection pill on herself and immediately jumped backward, casting an AoE ult. The AoE skills of the deity race were famous for having a large range and high damage.
So even if the ghost race used Stealth Kill, if they were unable to dodge this skill, they would be forced out of stealth.
A ghost character appeared to her right. And his username was, as expected, “Wind-walking The Heavens”.
[World] Music For Miles : [Snowfall Undermoon, wind-walking’s co-ords are at Fallback Valley, 66, 79.]
[World] Snowfall Undermoon : [Brother Windy, wait for me! I’ll be there soon to shower you with love! Clearwest, hold on, I’ll bring people over to support you!]
[World] Snowfall Undermoon : [Hey all you little bitches online, follow bengong1 to conquer Brother Windy!]
Wind-walking The Heavens hadn’t expected Shi Sheng to just pop up on world chat to say that. Seeing Snowfall Undermoon rallying people on world chat, he felt a bit faint. ‘I don’t want to face that ladyboy at all!’
Snowfall Undermoon used a Fast-Travel Scroll — an item bought with RMB — to teleport to Wind-walking The Heavens’ vicinity.
Shi Sheng saw a gorgeously outfitted girl appear and lunge at Wind-walking The Heavens. Shi Sheng quickly tossed a binding spell at the latter.
When Snowfall Undermoon slammed into Wind-walking The Heavens, the latter’s health started decreasing.
Snowfall Undermoon knocked him over and proceeded to desecrate his corpse. When Drunkalone Undermoon and Windsong Undermoon turned up next to Shi Sheng, they started chatting.
[Area] Windsong Undermoon : [drunkalone, why do I feel like snowfall is particularly strong today? he knocked over windy on his own, or was I seeing things?]
[Area] Drunkalone Undermoon : [clearwest cast a binding spell on windy. I think snow would really start to fall if snowfall were able to take him down on his own.]
[Area] Windsong Undermoon : [eh? So clearwest’s skills were this good… didn’t people always say she was shit? Is it the prof lvler on today?]
[Area] Drunkalone Undermoon : [that’s possible. she does seem different from before]
[Area] Music For Miles : [can you guys be subtler when I’m right in front of you?]
‘Think I’m(bbb) dead?’
There were four members of the Undermoon clan: Crabapple Undermoon, Drunkalone Undermoon, Windsong Undermoon and Snowfall Undermoon. Apparently, the four of them were living in the same dormitory.
Snowfall Undermoon was a female character, so he was called a ladyboy.
These four were referred to as the four scourges of the server. They were sure to turn up when trouble was brewing.
For example, the matter before had been completely unrelated to them but they still decided to stick their noses into it.
[Area] Windsong Undermoon : [Ms Clearwest, I notice you have exceptional talent. Any interest in joining our guild?]
[Area] Music For Miles : [a guild with just the four of you? is that befitting of someone as awesome as me?]
[Area] Drunkalone Undermoon : [……]
[Area] Windsong Undermoon : [……]
‘And here I thought Boss was narcissistic. Never thought I’d meet someone even more narcissistic…’
Once Snowfall Undermoon had finished abusing the corpse, (s)he ran over.
[Area] Snowfall Undermoon : [come on let’s go! else when Brother Windy calls his pals we won’t be able to!]
A party invite popped up in front of Shi Sheng.
Snowfall Undermoon has invited you to join the Party “Fugitive Gang”. Do you accept?
‘“Fugitive Gang”…’ Shi Sheng wordlessly pressed “Yes”.
[Party] Drunkalone Undermoon : [i’m following.]2
[Party] Windsong Undermoon : [i’m following too. snowfall, you caused the trouble, you’re the party leader, so you run]
[Party] Snowfall Undermoon : [i’m not running. i’m bummed out from that session of passionate love with brother windy.]
…And the party disbanded.
[Area] Music For Miles : [……]
Drunkalone Undermoon has invited you to join the Party “Group of People Running For Their Lives”. Do you accept?
Shi Sheng selected “Yes” but it turned out the position of Party leader landed on her…
[Party] Drunkalone Undermoon : [Ms Musey, if you would please start running.]
[Party] Snowfall Undermoon : [aren’t you embarrassed at getting a girl to carry you?]
[Party] Windsong Undermoon : [then what did you activate follow mode for? think we’re blind?]
[Party] Snowfall Undermoon : […just pretend I never said anything.]
Shi Sheng was speechless as she brought them out of Fallback Valley and towards the level 60-70 zone. “Windy” gathered his pals and started asking for their co-ordinates.
Shi Sheng very considerately provided updates to her co-ordinates on world chat. Those co-ordinates were real this time… though by the time anyone got there, Shi Sheng was long gone.
“Windy” and gang were so infuriated that they started cursing on world chat.
[Party] Snowfall Undermoon : [so this method of escaping existed…]
Snowfall Undermoon sighed with emotion. ‘Broadened my horizons today.’
[Party] Music For Miles : [well I’m stopping here for the day, going off now]
[Party] Snowfall Undermoon : [wait wait wait a moment, add me to your friends list first. i feel like we’re long lost sisters!]
Shi Sheng added the three of them to her friends list before logging off.
Shi Sheng’s antics had diverted people’s attention from the whole “Clearwest sold out Drunkflower Den” fiasco.
‘En… now the drunkflowers are chasing after me.’
When Shi Sheng logged on the next day, she was greeted by a mailbox full to bursting. Especially with the kind that went “You’ve had a bounty of [amt] placed on you by Player [playername].”
Shi Sheng deleted all of them before readying her character for the day’s task: levelling up.
[PM] Snowfall Undermoon : [you’re on!]
[PM] Music For Miles : [what do you want? hurry up and spill, if there’s nothing, bugger off]
[PM] Snowfall Undermoon : [don’t be so distant~ we’re fellow fugitives who shared life and death together, remember?]
[PM] Music For Miles : [speak human.]
‘It was clearly me carrying them to escape from pursuit. Yet he still dares to say we shared life and death together…’
[PM] Snowfall Undermoon : [how many bounties do you have on your head?]
[PM] Music For Miles : [too many, didn’t count]
Her mailbox was already bursting from alerts so she didn’t feel like counting them.
‘It’s no big deal to be chased around. I just have to run. If I can’t run, I’ll fight. If I can’t fight then…
I’ll log off.
And come back another day.
People need to be flexible, you know.’
[PM] Snowfall Undermoon : [hey, we’re clearing out the lvl 60 dungeon, you coming?]
[PM] Music For Miles : [nope. i’m going tower-toppling.]
“Tower-toppling” was the nickname for the Twinklegem Tower activity. There was a total of 70 levels to Twinklegem Tower, one for each level to the level cap.
More would be added in future updates when the level cap was increased.
Twinklegem Tower was a weekly activity and could be done solo or in parties. Within the week, as long as you didn’t die, you’d be able to quit and resume from where you stopped the next day.
But if you didn’t manage to clear it within a week, you’d have to start over. Er… it seemed like no one had managed to clear it yet.
[PM] Snowfall Undermoon : [You’re planning on going tower-toppling all alone this early in the morning?]
Snowfall Undermoon was shocked. You could infer how hard it was to successfully clear it from how none of the major guilds had managed to do so yet.
- *cough cough* You should be familiar with this if you usually read CN. If you don’t, it’s a way of referring to yourself if your status is a) a consort of an Emperor, b) the Crown Prince of an Empire, or c) a Princess, daughter of an Emperor. So, basically a fancy way of referring to yourself. In fact, the (bbb) that sometimes appears after pronouns (when Shi Sheng is speaking) is ben bao bao, which is like bengong, but not officially acknowledged. It’s more like a slang.
- They’re referring to using the ‘follow’ function where their characters will automatically run after/follow another character they choose. So they’re fighting over who has to actually navigate their character so that the rest of them can be lazy and not do anything
